Minimalist Movie Poster

I had a lot of fun with this assignment! I chose one of my favorite movies, October Sky. It’s not an 80s movie, but it is officially October now!

I love this movie for a lot of reasons, but the main one (and my reason for a lot of the things I like) is that it’s nostalgic. I watched it for the first time with my dad and I associate the movie with him. Besides, it’s a pretty inspiring movie.

When designing it, I chose to go as minimalist as possible and just had a basic rocket outline with the two stars I, personally, recognize the most. I chose a blue background to represent the clear, blue skies.

I really like the finished product. It’s really simple, but I’m weirdly proud of it.

Here’s a pic of my cat for the end of this post. Just to shake things up a bit.

Four Icons, One 80s Movie

So before I just give away the answer to my icon story, let’s go through the process of doing this.

I am not good at design. I want to be good at design. Much more practice is needed.

Wowza. This was a process. I am not good with technology and kind of fumbled about for a little. I eventually got there, but boy, was it a mess. I’m pretty happy with the final product though. Which, if you haven’t already guessed, is Indiana Jones. It’s a classic.

Anyways, here’s a picture of my dogs.
